    What's with the heaters in this country?

    I've stayed in several B&B's and hotels so far and not one has a working heater in the room. Maybe they used to work? The towel warmers also seem to be there for decoration...

    I arrived a day early for my reservation and the staff was gracious enough to find me accommodation. I had to take a double room, so it cost me more, but it was worth it to have a spot. The room is clean and there is hand soap! Another thing that seems to be missing from the other places I've stayed. The shower ran hot, lukewarm, bordering on cold, then lukewarm. The staff is very friendly.

    ... to lighten up as we got to the hill that the ruins was on. However, the rain clouds prevented us from watching the sunrise. We then started to hike down (going down it a lot harder than going up, the grass is tall and it is hard to tell how large or small the step is), I did fall once, but it was not too bad. There then was a choice of how to go around a bush. I chose wrong. It was grassy and looked dry, but that was not the case. It ...

    ... houses in this corner of Ardnamurchan. At Swordle bay an information board told me the area had been occupied since 3700BC.
    At Kilmory I could have taken a straight line across farmland but chose the longer but easier option and stuck to the road.
    The end of the walk at Fascadale marked another dead end. It was now 1300 and it would take us until 1830 to get ...

    ... of Castle Tioram, the traditional seat of a branch of Clan Donald.
    I now had to decide where to end the day's walk. My original plan was to go as far as Ockle. The alternative was to stop at Arivegaig. Ockle is 8 miles further. I didn't particularly like either option; one too far, the other not far enough. In the end the decision was a no-brainer. Due to the circuitous nature of Ardnamurchan's road network to pick me up at Ockle ...

    ... is about three hours from Inverness and the same distance from Fort William. Eilean Donan Castle is on the road between them at about the halfway point.

    We went to Dunvegan Castle and Gardens first, passing right by Eilean Donan and seeing that we would find it easily on the return. Dunvegan is on the western edge of the Isle of Skye, and we took the Skye Bridge near the town of Kyle of Lochalsh ...

    Canoe Trip on Loch Eil

    We woke up early Wednesday morning and drove to Corpach to meet the nice folks at Rockhoppers, a local adventure outfitter. They dropped us off on Loch Eil at the Caledonian Canal locks with a canoe, a dry sack, an 8.5 x 11" dog-eared map, and very little instruction. We geared up and launched the canoe into the water with one main goal - staying out of the freezing loch. The jellyfish provided additional incentive to keep the canoe ...
